Diagnosis. The ground colour is fawn with shades of grey. The forewing has a narrow, dark brown medial band that has a biarcuate, whitish mark from the reniform at its distal edge. The subapical brown patch on the costa is more strongly curved at its margin basally, and is larger than in the next species, and broken by pale marks associated with the submarginal.

Geographical range. New Guinea, Sulawesi, Sumatra (HS / ZSM), Borneo.

Habitat preference. Only two specimens have been recorded, one from disturbed lowland dipterocarp forest (30-60m) at Labi in Brunei and one from wet heath forest at 150m on a river terrace west of the Melinau Gorge near G. Mulu.
